Re: Expats - Listen Up!

Thanks for the heads-up, Englishmum. I already use the LBC app to listen to my favorite shows there (got my American wife addicted to it, too!), and usually play Radio 4 or 5 from my PC through the...

Re: Old-Fashioned Stuff That Still Functions

In the "not old, but old-fashioned" pile... I've always hated disposable razors and even worse are the prices now of razors with replaceable head-catridges... $37 on Amazon for 12 blades that are...

Re: "HOLA!!!" - John Leguizamo To Play "Del Boy" In US

That's what I'm thinking. Sanford & Son, All In The Family, Three's Company, The Office, Shameless... All pretty successful adaptations of classic British shows, whether you like them or not. Of...

Re: "HOLA!!!" - John Leguizamo To Play "Del Boy" In US

The British one wasn't really all that funny after the second series anyway. Chances are it'll go out with a different name, different characters and be totally Americanized. It's not like anyone's...

Re: Super Bowl ???!

I was never a football (soccer) fan growing up: I lived too close to both Arsenal and Tottenham to pick a team to follow as I got beat up no matter which one I chose, so when Channel 4 started...

Re: Slowly assimilating.

For the Aluminium/Aluminum thing, both ways are right, and I use them interchangeabley, as i do with most of my bilingualism, to confuse the locals wherever I am.

Re: New Music 2011

Crikey! I had their first album on tape and played the hell out of it back in the day. They were a little like Suede, but also sounded a little like Placebo at times, I thought. Great to see they're...

Re: Trip to NJ Sat to look for possible areas to live

This is one of those things that could just be a lot of downed trees and water damage, or we could all be out of power for a week. No idea how it will pan out at this time. I've planned to sit around...

Re: Surprising my Mum

On a serious note, you could book a table at a nice restaurant, send a car to pick her up at the airport and take her straight there. It would be like a surprise party for her when she arrives.

Re: Milburn versus Chatham Rental & Elementary Schools

Actually, I choose not to work there. It's such a soul-destroying place that I'd rather commute 1.5 hours each way to Long Island City than drive 20 minutes each way to that place...

Re: Milburn versus Chatham Rental & Elementary Schools

My company has an office across from Short Hills Mall (or rather, The Mall at Short Hills, because it's posh). It's yet another reason why I hate working at that office, despite its location cutting...

Re: Milburn versus Chatham Rental & Elementary Schools

I live in Maplewood and TBH have never heard that about Millburn, and I live right on the border between the two towns. Chatham, however, does have a reputation for being lily white, though I don't...

Re: Why did I keep it.

Funny. I found mine yesterday while working on the basement from February 1999 and was wondering the same thing, do I chuck it or frame it?

Re: U.S. newspaper writting style hard to follow.

TV news cracks me up, especially cable. "Now here's what's happening in our new segment Around The World In 90 Seconds"...

Cheers. I'll pass that along to my wife, who as one of her many jobs, writes an astrology column every morning, based on advice she'd like to give to her mates.

Re: Was in my first tornado last night.

Holy quick-thinking, ABY-man! Glad to hear you made it through that. If it happened to me, I'd lose about 50 pounds, all of it brown.
